, am on the naughty list again? ho ho ho! s a the newtown massacre lou: the newtown, connecticut, t massacre creates a debate on gu. control without question. but it is arguably more important to have a national discussion on mental health ar care.topic. very unpopular dtai topic. we still don't know the facts of a 20-year-old man turning into a mass murderer last friday, but we do know many ofa the factsout about a mental health care peop systemmthat is failing. there are far too many people that could be productive in our society. but first, we need to tlook at the truth and dimension.well just how big is mental illness in america? well, i hope you are sitting down. because these numbers are simply sounded very at according to the national institute, the national institute of mental health, 20%o of this country, 20% of us at one time or another, some 60 million people, 60 million americans experience a mental health disorder in any given year. ve those, some 60 million peopli receive some form of help. despite the often desperate neec for care, it is almost twicea af difficult to
. then there was the newtown, connecticut, massacre. that has influence the attitudes of friends and families and people i know. the tragedy of that day just a week ago, in which 26 people lost their lives, 24 of them were children between the ages of five and 10. it hangs over this usually happy season. even so, i feel grateful this year. maybe more than usual for my colleagues here at fox. with my friends and my family. we live in a country that yes, has its problems. and we talk about those problems everyday on the show. but the bottom line is this. you wouldn't want to live anywhere else, would you? i sure wouldn't. we have freedom, we have opportunity, and many of us, most of us have a roof over our heads and a safe place to sleep at night. the icing on the cake will be wrapped in boxes under the tree. but it will be in spending time with family and friends. and we know that now this year better than almost any year that i can ever remember. that, my friends, is a true blessing. merry christmas. that is what i think. now we want to know when you think. here's our question tonight. what is the emphasis in
proposal was made in connecticut to make it a felony to own high capacity magazines with more than ten bullets. but as part of a campaign organized by the nra and other gun advocates, opponents to the law swapped state legislatures with 30,000 letters and e-mails and showed up enmasse to a committee hearing to oppose the law. gun makers warn that the billion dollar firearms industry would move its jobs elsewhere if the bill passed and in the end, not surprisingly, the proposal died. so last friday, in newtown, connecticut, adam lanza used a bushmaster ar-15 rifle with still legal magazines holding not ten, but 30 rounds, to kill those 26 souls at sandy hook elementary. with me at the table today is anthea butler, professor of religious studies at the university of pennsylvania. msnbc contributor ari melber of the nation magazine. joe watkins, republican strategist and former aide to president george h.w. bush and mark glaze, director of mayors against illegal guns. so that was a lot, a lot to deal with, a lot of history of the nra. it's interesting because in the history of the nra it
it is something else. i think we have seen that kind of regionalization of laws. connecticut had an assault weapons ban that didn't prevent this tragedy from happening and didn't outlaw the kind of gun you would want to be outlawed for that kind of tragedy. i don't know that the federal government will be able to slice and dice. it will be very difficult and very close if they are able to get something done. i know there is going to be a big push on it. the president is going to speak on it. they will have to marshall all of their good will after this to try to figure out what can be done. >> all right. thanks. we'll see you later on in the show. >>> as the nation's most powerful gun lobby group doubles down for the call for armed guards at schools we are learning more about adam lanza. the washington post today has a quote from his former first grade teacher who says there was a quiet depth to him that i couldn't penetrate. let's bring in national political reporter and bob franken, a syndicated columnist. welcome to both of you. before we get started i want to play you more on the intervi
in connecticut and the fiscal cliff. shopper track now says that stores will see a 2.5% increase in november and december, and that's down from the original projection, 3.3% gain. really? sandy? a shooting? fiscal cliff? what about a weakening economy. a few jobs, no money. maybe that's a reason for this. not great, not stellar holiday shopping season and let's bring in carol ross, former investment banker, knows a thing or two about shopping and investment petailers, i'm saying, i'm tired of the excuses. i'm tired of hearing, oh, it's sandy or it's that or that and there's always an excuse when the economy starts to weaken, i just any the economy is weakening. what do you say? >> well, i agree, i mean, obviously, people have less money, they haven't been working and they're underemployed, but i do think that this is the big piece, stuart, this is pessimism. because you have to remember, even in the face of no money and no job, which has been going on for a while. consumer credit capacity actually has been increasing and consumers have been deleveraging and their home values have been going
nonsense. >> think of the people of connecticut they have been and trauma. it could be behavioral therapy that is what we talk about. it is remarkable what can be done. john: what is goldman bent $10 million? >> alatas studies on this specific intervention says it works well for this 6318 population that is being treated as adults in the adult jail. john: you have volunteers in this did in vermont? >> good ideas with this of what we're talking about i hope this comes out good but a good idea is spread because they want to start their own versson so volunteers in medicine say free clinics can help those without insurance as well as obamacare. now there are 92 free clinics. after 15 years. it is not a media. 100 years ago we had a lot of immigrants and settlement houses across the united states. they copied each other it was not located through department of hhs but they raise their own money. this process can still go on. we can encourage it. >> now with a sophisticated website you can see where the money goes? >> you have better indicators. not just how the money is spent but the results.
